With full implementation of the Australian Government’s new Child Care Package now only four months away, the Department of Human Services is about to start contacting families about the changes in subsidy payments.
In April, all families currently receiving CCB and/or CCR will be asked to provide extra information so that they can be assessed for the new Child Care Subsidy.
Ahead of this, in mid-February the Department of Human Services will be writing to:
• registered care providers and families receiving the registered care rate for Child Care Benefit, and
• current recipients of Grandparent Child Care Benefit to inform them of the changes that specifically relate to them.
The Department of Education and Training hosted three Family Webcast Information Sessions to help families learn about the New Child Care Package starting on 2 July 2018.
The PowerPoint presentation is attached below for your reference if you were not able to watch any of these webcasts.
